JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. (AFNS) --

The Air Force’s top leadership visited Airmen at the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center during Air Mobility Command’s Fall Phoenix Rally, Oct. 9.

During their visit, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein and Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright toured the center to engage with Airmen and gain a better understanding of its mission.

Located on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, the center is the Air Force's center of excellence for rapid global mobility and expeditionary agile combat support training and education. It provides direct oversight for the global en route system, the Air Force’s only contingency response wing, building partnership capacity mission sets within the global mobility enterprise, as well as installation support for three joint bases.

While at the Expeditionary Center, Goldfein and Wright received briefings about the courses and specialty training that are preparing Airmen for expeditionary conditions worldwide. The Center’s U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Operations School graduates approximately 40,000 Airmen annually from all career fields, ranks and major commands. The Airmen trained at the EOS directly support war-fighting commanders wherever they are needed, providing strategic advantage anytime, anywhere.

“What happens here is essential to preparing us for the next fight,” Goldfein said.

The instructors at EOS also demonstrated how innovative training such as virtual reality tools and the flexibility to rapidly evolve training in response to lessons-learned provides ready and resilient Airmen to achieve mobility objectives worldwide.

During a session with the commanders and command chief master sergeants attending the Fall Phoenix Rally, Goldfein covered topics such as innovation, training, resilience, leadership and changing paradigms of how we operate across the domains.

“The Air Force is central to every fight,” Goldfein said. “We’re solving problems today and looking at how we do business so we can better support national objectives tomorrow."
